Rails & Stars

After I finished my last quilt (On Eagles Wings - Paper Pieced!) I still had a boatload of strips. The LAST time I gave away scraps those 2 ladies made SEVEN quilts!! This time I didn't get that over zealous & cut that many, but still more than I needed....So I started sewing the strips together with no real idea of where I going with it. I decided I was not going to BUY any fabric & had to lean towards whatever design/pattern I could come up with by what I had in my stash. The yellow stars are leftover fabric from a quilt I finished last year (or the year before), the black in the borders was barely enough for the border (not sure if I have enough for the binding, but I'm gonna give it a shot!!!) and the green was in my stash - it wasn't LEFT OVER from anything....but I have had it for a while. Not sure HOW LONG, but it's older than 4 years, I am positive! Un-Quilted it is currently 91" X 105" - it's photographed on a queen size bed, in these pictures. So I am confident it will still be fairly large after I quilt it. Don't even ask me WHEN that will clue. Prince Charming likes it!

4th Of July Decorations

Well folks, it is HOT HOT HOT in middle TN right now. This is all we did on Sunday. It was too hot to work outside onthe shed, too hot to run my long arm machine in the basement & almost too hot to sew upstairs in our family room. We need a new A/C unit for upstairs! I could not turn on my lights or keep my iron on, it was THAT hot. My flags don't stand out as much as I'd like them too, but they look really sweet! Happy Birthday USA ! Sam
